Re Lugnaquilla under fire
Hi patd. The route from Glen of Imaal goes up Camarahill and onto Lugnaquilla. This route is totally within the artillary range for its entire lenght (6 kms or so). I would advise not being within the boundaries of the artillary range on firing days, as stray shells could end up at this southern boundary of the range.

How long would the walk take for a fit person if they left at 5:30am? - It's feasible that you could be down by 10am, but it's a 12km return walk with 725m of ascent. You'll have to work it out according to your own ability, but I would have thought that 5 or 5 1/2 hours would be more realistic.

The summit of Lugnaquilla is on the border of the artillary range. One option is to head up from Glenmalure along the zig-zag path via Clohernagh, which means you won't enter the firing range at all (if you use the map correctly you will skirt the border for a few hundred metres). Another approach is from Glenmalure via Fraughan Rock Glen or Table Track and Camenbologue. You could also ring the army in Imaal on (045) 404653 to see if the Glen of Imaal route is totally off limits during firing. (I imagine it is)

The Glen of Imaal artillary range is big with a boundary of over 25km. One MountainViews member related a story to us about leading a group of scouts accidentally into the range and how the army had to evacuate them. Play it safe and if you can't change the time or day then change the route up.

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.
